View Full Version : Need help with my hunt mag.........

08-19-2009, 3:42 PM
So i am running a hunt magneto on my 88" panhead motor. The fucking thing runs like a raped ape..BUT!! i cant seem to keep the gear on the end of the magneto shaft. it has fallen off twice. Both times were on the freeway. i have a feeling it is designed to break off at the roll pin so it doesn't destroy the cam. What could cause this?

could the cam walk at freeway speeds?

when i was timing it the motor backfired on the starter once but it rode fine for 150 miles after that.

Any help would be appreciated.
